(b) The department of health and human resources shall prepare a descriptive catalogue of its juvenile programs and services available in local communities throughout this state and shall distribute copies of the same to every juvenile court in the state and, at the direction of the juvenile court, such catalogue shall be distributed to attorneys practicing before such court. Such catalogue shall also be made available to members of the general public upon request. The catalogue shall contain sufficient information as to particular programs and services so as to enable a user of the catalogue to make inquiries and referrals. The catalogue shall be constructed so as to meaningfully identify and describe programs and services. The requirements of this section are not satisfied by a simple listing of specific agencies or the individuals in charge of programs at a given time. The catalogue shall be updated and republished or supplemented from time to time as may be required to maintain its usefulness as a resource manual.
